Utopia & Wallpaper

I'm participating in a really cool group exhibition, opened from 10/16 - 11/21 at the Catskill Art Society- 48 Main St. Livingston Manor, NY. Will be displaying one of my paintings, and my first video piece. If you're up that way, definitely check it out. Show information & images below.

Utopia and Wallpaper: The Real and the Ideal  in the Pursuit of Social Democracy, October 16 - November 21, 2010. This exhibition, guest curated by Joel Carreiro and Brett DePalma, takes inspiration from the fact that the Livingston Manor Central School houses six amazing 19th century panels created by artist Jean-Julien Deltil from the famous Zuber et Cie wallpaper company, which depict idealized visions of what America was or might become. Artists were asked to respond directly to the implications the panels embody for the possibility of social democracy, then and now. Artists participating in this show are Tate Billings, Amy Chan, Andrew Chan, Peter Edlund, Elizabeth Ennis, Max Greis, Melanie Printup Hope, Yashua Klos, Rosalie Morris, John Morton, Jesse Sachs, Jackie Shatz and Yeongkuk Yu.
